Following the re-introduction of some coronavirus safety regulations, there have been some conflicting sentiments expressed by people in government about what this actually means.
On the one hand, there is no legal requirement for people to cancel Christmas parties or stop close contact with others, and masks are not required in hospitality settings.
However, face coverings are now mandatory in shops and we are being urged to use "common sense" when meeting others.
Larger businesses have been advised by one minister to "re-think" their Christmas party plans. Do you fully understand the latest rules around COVID-1?
"I'm sure I do. Don't test me on it but I've got a good idea"
Malcolm from Wallasey said: "I'm sure I do. Don't test me on it but I've got a good idea of it, wearing face coverings and washing your hands."
Some countries in mainland Europe seem to have made it very clear what their rules are such as excluding the unvaccinated from certain aspects of daily life.
Are you happy to wear a mask and limit contact if it means avoiding a lockdown?
"I just don't agree with any of it"
Paul from North Wales, who's had coronavirus, said: "I'm not wearing one, I just don't agree with any of it. If you want to wear it, wear it, if you don't want to, then don't."
"I wouldn't go out my way to wear one all the time"
Dave from Birkenhead said: "If someone asked me to, I'd go yeah okay if I've got one of me. But I wouldn't go out my way to purposely wear one all the time."
